SPECTACULAR IMAGES FROM SOUTHERN AFRICA

© Namibia - The Trees of Deadvlei - by: Houghaard Malan


Houghaard Malan, bought is first SLR camera at the age of 19 and within two, years he was well on his way to turning his new found passion, landscape photography into a fulltime career. 
“I am inspired by moments when the elements of nature combine as if painted by a god, to create scenes so beautiful that one has to take the time to stand back in awe and marvel at the beauty of the world we live in. I want my photos to remove the viewer from their present location and transport them to the scene so they can feel the wind and see the golden light of the setting sun on their skin. That is the purpose of a landscape photo, to experience the beauty of a place without being there.”
